PAIVA, Ilana Lemos de  y  YAMAMOTO, Oswaldo H.. In defense of psychiatric reform: for the dawn of a new unavoidable future. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.2, pp.549-569. ISSN 0104-5970.

This work comprises a study into the historic process of implementation of psychiatric reforms in Rio Grande do Norte state, highlighting the agents involved, their careers, achievements and progress and this movement's current prospects for realizing the ideal of reintegrating mental health patients in society. It is necessary to comprehend the process that took place within the Municipal Health Department starting in 1992, since this experience was the driving force for reflections upon psychiatric reform across the state. This is followed by a documental analysis of reports, legislation and dossiers, as well as the collection of depositions by people involved in the process with a view to building up the identity of the social agents and analyzing their perceptions of the facts, highlighting congruencies and incongruencies concerning the history of the local psychiatric reform.
